Police Repot – three-legged dog, people

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment

Following too close

March 19 at 9:45 am police were called to a collision in Cache Creek involving two southbound vehicles on Hwy 1 when a pickup truck driven by an Alberta man rear-ended another vehicle, driven by a local man. There was minor damage. The drivers exchanged information and the Alberta man left the scene. Police arrived and advised the remaining driver to notify ICBC.

Abandoned vehicle

March 19 at 1:25 pm police received a complaint about an abandoned vehicle in Ashcroft that had been parked in the same spot on Hill St. for three and a half years. The Volkswagen was without license plates but was parked on private property. Police advised the property owner that it was a matter for their strata council. The Registered Owner in Nanaimo was contacted and advised that he didn’t want the car. The council agreed to have it towed.

Handicapped dog

March 20 at 1 pm police received a call about an injured and abandoned dog on Muscle Beach, just off Cornwall Rd. Ashcroft’s animal control officer would not attend because it was outside Ashcroft’s jurisdiction. RCMP attended and located the three-legged pooch and its owner. The dog was happy and as healthy as a three-legged dog could be.

Vehicle in the ditch

March 21 at 6:30 am police were called to the scene of a single vehicle accident on Hwy 99 about 10 km from the Hwy 97 turnoff. The four-door sedan was in the ditch but no one was on the scene. Roads were wet and slippery at the time. The car’s owner, a Lillooet man, was contacted and advised that he had made his own way to the hospital in Kamloops and had an injury to one hand attended to. The vehicle was towed.

Bad habits

March 23 at 2:16 am police received a complaint from a Husky employee regarding a truck driver who light up a cigarette just as he was exiting the building. The employee advised police that he contronted the man and told him that smoking inside a public building was illegal and unhealthy. The truck driver apologized to him and left. The 32 year old employee followed the driver and continued to admonish the man for his filthy and unhealthy habit, and he wrote down the license plate number on his truck. He then phoned police and advised them to set up a road block in the Fraser Canyon to catch the driver and issue him a warning about the hazards of smoking. It was explained to him that no further action would be taken on the matter.

No license, no worries

March 23 at 11:30 pm a Traffic Services officer stopped a Dodge Caravan on Hwy 1 in Lytton for a routine check. The 17 year old Lytton man could not produce a valid Drivers License and the officer could smell liquor on his breath. He provided two roadside samples of his breath and was issued a three-day driving suspension. The vehicle was released to a sober driver.

Disturbing family

March 25 at 2:15 am police were called to a family disturbance in Ashcroft by the mother of a 13 year old who complained that her daughter had pulled a knife on her when she went to the girl’s bedroom to confront her about stealing a bottle of beer from her. Everything was calm by the time police arrived. The daughter said her mother had given her beer in the past and didn’t think she woud care if she helped herself. She said she pulled the knife because she knew it would annoy her mother, but she didn’t intend to use it. The Ministry of Children and Family Services was notified.

Can’t hide forever

March 25 at 10:30 am Traffic Services spotted a Cache Creek man wanted on  warrants for failing to appear in Kamloops court. He was arrested and held in custody, and taken to Kamloops.
